One of the NFL’s most popular (backup) quarterbacks is returning to the Windy City.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, veteran signal-caller Nathan Peterman was signed to Chicago’s active roster along with wide receiver/special teams returner Trent Taylor.
Peterman was drafted in the fifth round (171st overall) by the Buffalo Bills back in 2017. Peterman had a forgettable debut for the ages in Week 11 of the 2017 campaign against the Los Angeles Chargers, throwing an alarming five interceptions in the first half alone. It tied a record for most interceptions thrown by an NFL quarterback in his first career start.
The Chargers went on to win that game soundly 54-24, and head coach Sean McDermott decided to go back to Tyrod Taylor. Peterman also started the team’s Week 14 contest, a snow-filled affair at New Era Field, against the Indianapolis Colts.
In that sluggish game, Peterman completed five of 10 pass attempts for 57 yards and a touchdown, and the Bills went on to win 13-7. Despite the lackluster play at quarterback all year long, they finished 9-7 and ended an 18-year postseason drought.
Peterman also started two games for the Bills in 2018, both losses. He had one touchdown against a whopping seven interceptions. The journeyman QB started Chicago’s Week 18 finale against the Vikings last season a 29-13 Minnesota victory.
